Al Bundy left this review about Porter's Ale House

A sort of rock music biker kinda place which is pretty decent if you can bear the rather unhygienic feel about it. Pictures of 'rock legends' dotted around. No Sonic Youth or Half Man Half Biscuit picture which would've been nice. Some interesting cask ales on on my visit including an 8% stout. Hic!

Malden man left this review about Porter's Ale House

A long narrow room with the bar along one side, wooden floors, a side area is raised slightly. Rock jukebox, biking stuff on the walls and model motorbikes on a shelf, the front corner has a dartboard while the rear section is dominated by a busy pool table. Beyond is a walled yard with designer graffiti and cover for the smokers. A rather unsettling morbid looking statue oversees the pool table, with another smaller one in the middle of the bar counter. There are glass cases of Jack Daniels glasses and other bits and bobs, rock music posters all over, live music is clearly a regular feature.
The beer range is ok, I felt I entered when there should be more on as three pumps were unclipped, Dunham Massey Punishing Porter, Robinson's Trooper, Hobgoblin...essential in here...Copper Beech cider plus another cider I couldn't see properly.
There are no frills or pretences here, it is a down to earth rock oriented beer drinkers pub, not one to take a maiden aunt or your mum to and I doubt they do food except crisps and the like, I quite liked it but even in a place like this a bit of cleaning and wiping of sticky tables doesn't detract from the image they're trying present and as for the toilets.....just practise holding your breath. Sort that out and it would be on a "do list".

There were eight hand pumps at the time of my recent visit, but unfortunately due to time pressure (train to catch) I didn't note what was available. I had Allgates Challenger, and I seem to recall that there were others from this brewery on too. Not so far from the station as the Tavern on Church Street, though the latter just gets the edge for me.
